I have printed my own and other artists’ work since 1976, when I and fellow graduate Deborah Walker purchased an enjay RP32 etching press. We began printing for Louis Kahan and Geoff la Gerche. Providing a custom printing service for 40+ years has led to many major collaborations with artists, a privileged and satisfying position for me to be so closely involved in the creative decision making process. My main editioning studio located in NE Victoria, is built around several enjay presses.

As a passionate printmaker and arts educator, I am the proud owner of three enjay presses. I use the large one for editioning in my Armidale studio, where I also conduct workshops. The two portable presses go anywhere and are fantastic for classes and workshops around the region, for plein air sessions. I exhibit regularly and am a foundation member of the Black Gully Printmakers at the Museum of Printing in the New England Regional Art Museum, where I have given lots of classes and demos.

Following many years as a commercial printer, I changed to a much more rewarding career as an artist printmaker and technician at the University of Tasmania. Now I regularly run classes for individual printmakers and community groups in my Moving Creature printmaking studio in Hobart and as far away as Fitzroy Crossing.
